@SouqBox we know that providing shrink wrapped SaaS products solve some of our customer’s problems but that there are many who require a tailored component or integrate into legacy systems. Sometimes the discovery process throws light on issues previously not considered and a decision is made to build a specialist enterprise solution.
The SouqBox leadership team has over 100 years in the tech industry between them and has held senior management positions in large corporations as well as being successful entrepreneurs in their own right. This means we understand the need to have world class services at a budget and timescale that fits your business size and available resources.
That’s why we developed the SouqBox project methodology. This is designed to organize a project into 4 clear and distinct stages. Each of these can be carried out in isolation and are intended to be a possible pivot or breakpoints for you as your needs become clearer. We do this to de risk your investment decisions;
Refine and outline the scope of the project – Problem & Solution view.
Capture the high level requirements of the project – including end user expectations.
External market view – competitors and market direction.
User personal – establish who the different user groups are and what the proposition looks like for them.
Reviewing existing digital data i.e analytics etc.,
Typically this is 5 days with you and stakeholders on site plus offsite work & has a fixed price of £5000 plus VAT.
Establish Low level designs (Wireframes) through to High Resolution design output.
Develop screen by screen wireframes showing actual user experience & interaction (UX & UI).
Output design in code ready format to speed up code process and reduce cost (XD, Zeplin, etc models used).
Will include full operations spec recommendations – Tech stack, hosting location, performance needs, security, etc.,
Price range £15-25k if we design (if we are not designing but only developing then we will still be involved with the design team). Negotiable for your own design team choice. To be agreed at the end of the discovery phase.
We will establish your environment for the project including Hosting location instance set up (dev, staging & production) and localized sandbox.
QA built into the build process to drive best practice deployment.
Our standard model is 2 weekly code sprints deployed on your staging server for UAT & feedback. This enables continuous development with rapid prototyping.
We can assist in developing testing scripts for end users (UAT) and will set up feedback services to capture this in real time.
Price – estimate will be given at the end of the design phase with contingency.
You may choose to take the production environment in the house or outsource to a 3rd party team.
Should you wish us to, we can continue to manage your environment for you.
We would actively monitor, patch and support the service.
Take on any small scale bug fixing within that and any larger development needs can be met by agreement.
If you prefer we can put a small full stack team (3 FTE) to manage and develop your environment and customize whatever support model meets your needs.
